Before you purchase a car, it's a good idea to understand all the costs associated with the purchase of the vehicle. Including the cost of automobile insurance. The Basics. Learning about how automobile insurance rates are determined will help you to navigate why rates vary and assist you with your auto buying decision. Factors that impact auto rates include the following: * Age of insured drivers- Young drivers under the age of 25 are statistically up to four times more likely to be in an accident. Additionally, males under the age of 25 will be more expensive to insure than females at that age. * Driver record- Studies indicate that drivers with past claims are more likely to have future claims. Drivers with moving violations, accidents and/or claims in the past three years usually pay a higher price for their automobile insurance than those ensuring the same vehicle but are "loss free." * The type of vehicle you drive- Both size and performance impact premium cost. Larger cars tend to be less expensive to insure than smaller cars because they typically suffer less damage in an accident. High-performance vehicles, such as sports cars, tend to be to insure since they are statistically driven more aggressively. As a result, they tend to be involved in accidents more frequently. * Value and age of the car- As a simple rule of thumb, the more expensive the car, the more it will cost to insure. The new the vehicle, the more it costs to insure. * Car features- You can earn premium discounts cased on the vehicles safety features, such as anti-lock brakes, air bags, anti-theft devices and having more than one car on the policy. * Vehicle usage and location- Typically, the higher the mileage, the higher the premium. Additionally, the more densely populated an area is, the higher the auto premium. *  Deductible choice- The higher your deductible, the lower your premium.
